Assuming the rear wheel has a free hub body, and assuming you feel like spending a little cash, pick up a Spot Singleshot spacer kit ($30). It will make life easier and you won't need to use your 11t cog ensure the lockring bites in enough. It lets you get a good straight chainline. If you are short on funds find someone with some old cassettes and get the spacers out. Some of the older LX cassettes were screwed together and some were riveted (pain in the ass). If you use old cassette spacers and can find a washer of the right diameter you won't need to use your 11 either. Check out webcyclery for SS parts if you really want to go crazy spending $$. You can get everything you need there - rings, bashguard, SS cogs etc. Or check out your LBS :) Good luck and have fun putting it together!
